Badger Balm Aromatherapy:
“Aromatherapy works by using the fragrance of pure essential oils to bypass the conscious mind & soothe the emotions on a deeper level.” That is a quote from Badger Balm, and you will find more information about how aromatherapy works at the link on the Badger Balm Website.
Badger Balm info. on some ingredients:
Badger Balm wants to encourage a cheerful mood, so there is the Lemon Oil, although the more prominent scent is the Sweet Orange. Spearmint is also detected, and it is apparently used by aromatherapists to not only treat respiratory conditions, such as sinus infections but for help with headaches. Spearmint oil is said to be cleansing and uplifting, and can also be a good remedy when you have a headache. Rosemary, an herb that is used for clear thinking and to improve memory, is also included.
Ylang Ylang (ee-lang ee-lang) is the famous flowering perfume tree. It is used in many expensive perfumes and this ingredient gives the Balm a wonderful floral scent. Here’s what the flower looks like:
Thoughts and Ways to Use the Badger Balm:
I was really excited to try the Balm, and although I would say I’m a cheerful person, I could certainly use some aromatherapy to try to de-stress!
All you have to do is rub your clean fingers over the surface of the balm until you have the amount that you need. I experimented with using varying amounts, but really just a little is all that is necessary for the aromatherapy benefits. Like the saying, “A little goes a long way.” I put some on my hands and then massaged a little onto my temples and forehead (Badger writes, “anywhere that needs soothing,”) Then I took a few minutes to take deep breaths and relax.
This a great size tin that you can use use at your work place because you’re not going to attract a a lot of attention by simply rubbing your temples with a little balm. Easy, and you’ll reap the benefits!
In addition to the wonderful aromatherapy benefits, the Cheerful Mind Balm is an excellent moisturizer that I used on my hands for a wonderful fresh, citrus scent. It’s also a great moisturizer for your lips. Dry, cracked skin on your elbows or your heels? This is great for that, too!
There’s nothing that I think anyone wouldn’t love about the Balm. In addition to USDA Certified Organic ingredients, the Cheerful Mind Balm contains antioxidants and is a great, gently scented, all purpose balm.
